A-socking we will go!

While in Calgary, I didn't seem to get as much knitted up as I had expected. I suspect it was because I spent quite a bit of time out of my hotel room for sanity purposes, as well as the fact that I worked for about 9 hours a day and didn't take any days off. I did get some stuff done though, and I'll put up pics soon of them. I also got a few things started, and I need to update my ticker as well as my sidebars.

On my weekend home I finished up my STR socks, and started on a generic pair out of Mega Boots stretch for Derek. When I returned to Calgary, I cast on another pair of Hockey Socks for him as well. The FO adds another 300 m to my distance travelled. I still need to add up what all I bought in Calgary, as well as my pre-flight purchases at Rams to add them to my total available distance.

Currently I have 3 pairs of socks on heavy rotation. I have to cast on the second sock of Derek's Hockey Socks, have just started the second sock of the Mega Boots, and have cast on a pair out of Tofutsies for myself. Once completed, these will add 392, 400, and 425 m to my total respectively.

She's baaaaaaaack!!!

Well I'm finally back home from Calgary! This time for good {temporarily maybe!}. It's been a very long 6 weeks, and I have quite a few pictures and some yarn to show for it! We're busy preparing the house for the move, and I need to get things set up to move many of the Purl in the Oyster sales pages as we will be changing internet providers.

A lot has happened in the last month and a half, and I hope to be able to bring you all up to date. I guess the first thing I should explain about is our move. While I was in Calgary, Derek was offered {and accepted} a promotion with his company. He will soon be the new assistant manager in Virden. This requires us to move 3 hours west of Winnipeg, selling our house, and buying a new one. This is where most of my time, energy, and money will be going for the next while. I also need to find out about getting a transfer to the Brandon Wal-Mart, as well as hopefully being able to get placed at the Airdrie, AB renovation which runs until October.
